The modular data center market size is expected to grow from USD 18.4 billion in 2020 to USD 37.8 billion by 2025, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 15.4% during the forecast period. Modular data centers are manufactured by integrating prefabricated modules that are built inside a factory and shipped to the client site where they assembled, deployed, and commissioned. These data centers are highly scalable and energy efficient and can be rapidly deployed to meet the clients current and near-term needs.
All-in-one modules segment to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The all-in-one module is a highly integrated containerized data center facility used in enterprise data management, oil exploration, and disaster relief. It is a temporary module usually implemented in cases, wherein data center mobility is a concern, as it comprises modules with cooling, power, and IT systems built inside a single container. These containerized modules are both portable and energy-efficient and provide on-site, ready-to-deploy solution, which reduces the installation cost and time. They also enable scalability and flexibility to the IT infrastructure to adjust to the design and size for future deployments. This advantage of the all-in-one module, wherein organizations can implement scale-out infrastructure is expected to fuel the market for modular data centers.
BFSI vertical to hold the largest market size during the forecast period
The BFSI segment comprises organizations that are into banking services, such as core banking, corporate, retail, investment, private, and cards; financial services, such as payment gateways, stockbroking, and mutual funds; and insurance services, covering both life and general insurance policies. The high growth of electronic banking, paperless storage, and virtualization in the BFSI sector is expected to increase the demand for safe, resilient, cost-effective, and energy-efficient modular data center solutions. The BFSI sector is constantly exposed to the challenges of intense competition, global expansion, consolidation, and changing consumer demand. These challenges increase the need for modular data center solutions for the BFSI sector, as they offer secure storage of critical data and meet consumers’ demands.
